Yes, there are fears of Mount Agung’s ash falls enveloping the whole island, but let this serves as a reminder that presence of ash falls in certain areas are highly dependent on direction and velocity of the wind. Reminders aside, the wind is currently still blowing to the east and southeastern side, hence your sun tanning or sunset sessions here in Seminyak are definitely still going to happen everyday—though not counting Indonesian wet season. Nevertheless, great promotions are popping out around the island like Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach’s Pool Vibe promo

Culinary Tour

Restaurants’ kitchens in Seminyak and the surrounding neighbourhoods are most definitely still cooking. Plates after plates of scrumptious treats are still being served by many of the amazing restaurants on the island. Even locals are still going out at night to grab some bites to eat! So on the food side, nothing to really worry about, except there might be one—having to make a decision on where to eat!

Spa Day

All this volcano talk can be quite stressful. Hakuna matata! The spas in and around Seminyak are still warming up their massage oils and the talented masseuses and masseurs of Bali are in hand to help untie those stress knots around your body. Additionally, just like its retail counterparts, a lot of the spas on the island are offering great discounts! Don’t believe us? Check out Sava Spa at Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach, as they are offering 50% discount on most of their treatments!

This is probably the one thing out of the many activities available on the island that you think you wouldn’t be able to do during this kind of situation. Well, dearest travellers, you may have thought wrong. Head up to the northwestern side of the island and you would still be able to bask in the beauty of Bali’s nature. The breathtaking sea of green rice terrace at Jatiluwih is still accessible, the colourful corals of Menjangan island are still available, the majestic Kanto Lampo waterfall is awaiting your visit, and the great temple of Tanah Lot is still opening its gates for you to marvel in their beauty!
